Community Resilience Projects

Condominiums are healthiest
and safest
as cooperative housing
owned from inside each embodied unit
and shared in common co-invested spaces
outside each individuated unit
together forming one living,
preferably nonviolent communicating,
empowering win/win resonant
restorative inside peace
and outside justice resolution
for cooperatively enlightened resilience.

Indigenously healthy
wealthy
and wise condo residents
come to our community
already trauma informed
and deformed,
seeking verbal and nonverbal
compassionate and nonviolent
common communication practices

Which focus equally on win/win felt trauma management
of past win/lose offenders
AND
our cooperatively therapeutic resilient health
promoting public co-invested wealth
supporting our indigenous win/lose traumatized victims
of aggressive
LeftBrain dominant
micro-cultural
and macro-climate environmental aggressions

Miscommunicating further win/lose competitive anxieties
through macro-violence

Discommunicating
excommunicating
EarthTribe’s Cooperative Resilience Project

Despite our vicious peaking
Great Transitional Experience
of climates communicating
warming
lose/lose dissociative
ego v eco
inside v outside
individual mind v integral body
co-invested common cooperative
yang-informed/yin-exflowing
communal communication trauma trends

Which may be why
residential
and commercial
and educational
and inter-religious
and multicultural
and polytheistic
and polypathic
and polyphonic
and polyvagal neuro-systemic
resilient condominiums
are private/public health projects
Anthro/EarthTribe safest
environmental communities

When panentheistically organic
green outside empowered energy
and red inside enlightened synergy
together resiliently projecting
cooperatively governed co-housing.

From the Resilient Ones

Do not give in
to lethargy
and despair

And do give joy
to recreation
and compassion

Despite stained underwear
in need of repair

Do not lose faith
in what
and whom
you can touch naturally
yet seldom feel spiritually

Do not lose hope
when you must:

hear healing voices
without embodied choices,

smell as present therapeutic being
yet losing taste
informed by past becoming trauma,

understand integrity’s truths
but never know synergy’s beauty,

listen for compassion
from Mother’s sacred womb
yet seldom solely speak
of outside
and for inside
loving souls

With regenerative issues
in-between not negative 1’s
and positive ecopolitical 0’s
brilliantly full
joyfully up
invested outside
yang natured
secular polynomial,
and yet sacred polytheistic,
exegetical nutrition narratives
of how we have globally become
unconditional compassion

Regenerating polyvagal neuro-systemic voices
of win/win
more than win/lose
more than lose/lose
consciousness
of indigenously wise choices
for resilience.

Knowing Nothing

My Math Teacher said:
I know how to teach you about 1
but can’t guide you into comprehending None–0

A more sacredly co-arising binomial relationship,
less traveled bipartisan path
to know Zero rises positive toward full
and suppresses negative
degenerating back through
reversing toward empty.

In any not non-quantitative way
that would leave you
or anyone else
with a final co-binary qualitative
healthy and safely balanced answer
to why natural monotheistic strong 1’s
and spiritual panentheistic flowing 0’s
embody transgenderal
bilateral
bicameral balancing faith
in healthy spaceless
timeless mystery
non-zero fully open
whole hole systemic zones
of preverbal neuro non-history

Readjusting to more cooperative
win/win settings
on the less patriarchal-capitalist
zero sum win/lose cognitive
leftbrain verbal dominant monotheistic faith
in thriving polycultural resonance
monocultural colonizing
predative tribal resilience for surviving
trauma environmental
complex and chaotic polynomial stressors

Enlightening polypathic Left
and empowering polyphonic Right
anthro-divine theological elitism
whole plundering Green Gaian
Queen Sacred Shabbot
polytheistic holy spirit mystery,
indigenous wisdom
of EarthMatriarchal
regenerative repurposing
spiraling Tao iconic lines

Gospel holy healthy matriarchal
on EarthMother’s best sacred
synergetic circling days
and kinda ecofeminist
not quite so anti-patriarchal mean reactionary
trying to win/lose survive
Earth’s less cooperative
co-governing

One LeftBrain Anthropocene
overwhelmed by climate traumatic anxiety
daze

Not capable of fully teaching you about 1
without knowing what you know
to rationally say
about sacred 0 Prime Relationship
deep tipping point balanced
bicameral listing back
and forth,
left
and right,
spatial
and temporal,
secular
and sacred One
co-binary nonzero

Emptying dark
and filling bright
health and safety
dialectic completing
synergetic dipolar relationship
of one thought
without no feelings
full of empty nonrecourse
to discourse

Choosing Happy Health

My round white anti-depressants
were trying their faithful best
to listen to my ecofeminist
wise old woman
gardening neighbor,
pulling aggressive weeds

Sharing with me
her morning meditation reflection
immediately after entering dawning eyes
and before exiting her dreamy
comforting
fertile bed

Her opening
and excavating self-invitation
to choose body health nutrition
and mind happiness nurturing
which are snugly associated
for her
like peas and carrots
remembering well-versed voice
intention

But,
not so much for me,
now able to choose health
almost every dawning day
and dusky night
but still struggling
for post-traumatic omnipotence
to thrive toward happiness
by empowered choice,
even if not enlightened voice
articulating all the many thankful ways
remembering well-cultivated rejoice.

What my gardening neighbor
and I speak of
feels like my dull
and darkly present
spatial stuck unchanging place

Which she
unlike me
can also remember
as having evolved through time
from current EarthTribe regenerating days
becoming nurturing seasons
within each annual surviving incarnation

Reversing back toward warm
welcoming first dawn light’s
empowering sacred
thriving invitation.

CoOperative Agency

They are friends,
I imagine,
Or perhaps unfamiliar
yet curious
neighbors.

These two seem to like
to lick
each other

And probably value public transparency
more than personal privacy

I wonder
how they became work out
and play in partners,
surprisingly athletic,
flexible,
and inventive

With minds
that began flirting,
Engaging bodies
now urgently culminating.

Benediction
for this newly heated
yet ancient
sacred communion

A warm summer kiss,
a shared soiled towel,
a sapient smile
in the shower.

Gifted Doorways

“Grief can be a doorway to love.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

Grief can open toward gratitude
As loss can open doors to access gain

As trauma can open hearts
to therapeutic brains

As neglect can foster curious compassion

As depression
can incite active
co-empathic impressions

As double negative sociopathologies
can notice doorways
to positive psychologies

As double-binding
dualdark entropy
can open space
for positive double-binary energy strings
of co-empathic
multiculturing time

As isolating sadness
can open doors
to love’s transcendent gladness.

Reflections On Ancient Love

Long before sun light
was born from starkness

Long before Earth’s dawn
broiled unsteady hot star fire

Long before She filled
Her scarlet mind
with Yang’s high hills
time was this love

This ancient life
is reborn.

Long before our trees
greenly filled
Mother’s forests

Long before a wind
unsailed to sing
Earth’s wholesome songs

Long before She filled
Her turqjuoise mind
across Her seas,
time rewinds love

This ancient life
health born.

Long before Earth’s great chain
of being
forged ecocidal
egosystems

Long before a voice
could speak
divine creation

Long before She filled
Her bleeding heart
to grow a child
there is Earth’s love

This ancient life
wealth torn.

Long before a Truth
of love’s life
could be broken

Long before our wounds
were nailed upon a Mother Tree

Long before She laid Her body down
under His light
time spins this love

This ancient life
still born.

Wakeful each night
Greeting Earth’s dawning

Stubborn as trees
rebirthing burned
wounded hills

As we fill our healing minds
to hold Earth’s timeless time
This ancient love
Her aching life
flows stumbling on.

Note: This is a theological/ecological reflection on the lyrics to “This Ancient Love” words and music by Carolyn McDade, Copyright by Surtsey Publishing/ 1996, by Carolyn McDade.  These are the word choices I hear when speaking and singing Carolyn McDade’s beautiful composition. Not experienced, meant, intended as an improvement, update, or correction, but as a Both/And communion of sad sacred gratitude, in preparation for Earth Day, 2022.

What Is This Thing?

What is this thing
called mortal love?
Yet not a Thing
at all

At least a Relationship,
Which, of course,
requires two or more
to adore-fully dance
or, divorcing,
fall

Back into Earth’s green ball
planting and replanting health
without one sign to recall
LeftBrain conserving dominance
preserving StraightWhiteMale prominence
throughout his-story’s clumsy appall

Peace brokers wondering,
How grows this integrity,
felt immortal passion
not not mortally unknown
after bodies
and before spirits
good health natured
co-arising All

These sacred relationships
for Earth’s immortal love
in one dynamic place,
passions springing forth
toward warm best known
recall.
